Forged cam-track links improve reliabilityForged cam-track links improve reliability

The F441R Baler uses the premium pickup that is also equipped on high-spec V4X1R Variable Chamber Balers. To fit all conditions, the baler is available with a 2.0-m (6.56-ft) or 2.20-m (7.22-ft) width.

The pickup, driven by 19.05-mm (0.75-in.) heavy-duty chains,features five tine (four on the F441M) bars with a low rotating speed. The large-diameter strippers allow five tine bars in the pickup. The picking capacity is 25 percent higher than for the F441M. With bearings added to the cam track, all of these features provide a smooth and quiet ride with extended uptime.

In addition to the high-spec features, the F441R benefits from stainless-steel strippers, a market exclusive. Stainless steel provides the following advantages:

  • No rust
  • Constant gliding capacity
  • High resistance to aggressive additives such as propionic acids

The F441R Balers pickup uses the cam-track design, providing a better solution to harvesting wet crops. Contrary to the cam-less design, the cam track pickup:

  • Features a short space between the tines and rotor, limiting dead zone.
  • Avoids pinching area, so no crops are plugged into the pickup drums.
High-capacity (HC) rotor for higher productivity and durability
MaxiCut™ HC 25 Premium has a single axis for rotor and converging augersMaxiCut™ HC 25 Premium has a single axis for rotor and converging augers
HC rotor limits plugsHC rotor limits plugs

To maximize productivity in the toughest swaths, the F441R Baler features an HC Premium rotor design. Converging augers are aligned with the rotor, limiting the free space between pickup teeth and rotor. Plugging risk is also decreased and crop transfer is highly improved. The simple HC Premium rotor design also reduces the number of moving parts and provides reliability. For example, stress on the rotor is distributed along the rotor to avoid overhang load on the bearings. Additionally, all rotors feature tines that are made of Hardox® wear plate which drastically improves wear resistance, especially in rocky fields.

The F441R is only available with a precutter, offering space between knives as short as 40 mm (1.57 in.) or80 mm (3.15 in.).

The F441R can be used on several kinds of crops, in which knives can be engaged or removed. No matter the rotor type or monitor, this operation is easily managed from the cab.

When using the MaxiCut HC 25 Premium precutter, crops can be cut as short as 40 mm (1.57 in.), but only half of the knives can be engaged. This system proposes to use two different sets of knives for the same cutting width, to allow the use of sharp knives longer. By using sharpened knives versus blunt, fuel consumption can be decreased by up to 10 percent.

No matter the operator experience, plugs can still occur, especially with large silage swaths. The F441R is equipped as a base with a drop floor unplugging system. The F441R drop floor features exclusive advantages, such as:

  • Full-width design - by covering the full pickup width, the device is able to remove plugs, even located under converging augers.
  • Parallel kinematic - no rear or front hinge means no narrowing. The F441R drop floor offers a constant 40-mm (1.6-in.)free space through the feeding channel when activated. This is enough to decompress the crops and avoid crop loss.

No matter the precutter or monitor type, the drop floor unplugging system can be easily managed from the cab.

Heavy-duty bale chamber provides density, durability, and multi-crop capability

Rolls manufacturing provides long lifespan
12 ribs roll12 ribs roll
Bearings protection feature chicane and lips plastic sealBearings protection feature chicane and lips plastic seal

In order to provide high-quality rolls, the F441R rolls are not two half shelves welded together. John Deere only uses tubes that are ribbed to better grip the crops. The dedicated manufacturing process produces an accurate cylindrical shape, avoiding vibration.

Fully greaseable bearings can be replaced easilyFully greaseable bearings can be replaced easily

All rolls are now assembled on larger bearings that are 50 mm (1.97 in.) in diameter with a 90-mm (3.54-in.) width or 55 mm (2.17 in.) in diameter with a 100-mm (3.94-in.) width. On the left side of the machine the bearing load capacity has been increased by 20 percent and on the right side by 35 percent. All bearings are greaseable. Additionally, lips plastic seal integrated in chicane locks off debris, silage juice, and moisture from bearings.

In order to improve the machine's durability, roll bearings feature 20 percent more load capacity on the left side of the machine and 35 percent more on the right side.

Specific rolls handle the stress
Blue and red rolls are heavy dutyBlue and red rolls are heavy duty

All rolls feature upgraded quality steel providing 20 percent higher yield strength. Depending on their positions, the rolls do not all carry the same load and stress, specifically:

  • Rolls numbered 14 and 17 (blue)transmit the load of the main drive to the secondary chains (front bale chamber part and tailgate) and the pair of bottom roll numbered 10 and 11 (red)carry most of the bale weight. Due to this specific stress,these rolls feature a higher thickness of 4 mm (0.16 in.) instead of 3.2 mm (0.13 in.) and specific shafts in order to achieve requested durability.
Adjust bale size and density independently and maximize bale weight
Green column indicates bale diameter target – black column indicates bale diameter statusGreen column indicates bale diameter target – black column indicates bale diameter status
Bales density can be adjusted from ISOBUS monitors through proportional density valveBales density can be adjusted from ISOBUS monitors through proportional density valve

The balers allow operators to maximizebale weightand minimize total production costs due to shipping and storage needs.The bale diameter can be easily adjusted from between 1.25 m to 1.35 m (4.10 ftto 4.43 ft) from the monitor. The settings (seven steps)allow an accurate and quick choice. The bale diameter is controlled by contactless sensors, which provide long durability and error proof monitoring.

The bale density and size are not directly linked on the F441R and C441R Balers. Depending on the crop type, operators can independently choose a small-diameter bale with the highest density, a 1.30-m (4.27-ft) balewithhigher density, or large-diameter bale with low density. A pressure gauge located on the front of the baler or on the monitor screen communicating the density is linked to the density harness. The density is easily adjusted from the monitor on an ISOBUS baler orby a knob located directlyon the density valve in front of the baler. No toolsare required.

The density harness is a closed and isolated circuit, meaning that there is no continuous oil flow requiring extra power consumption.

The density booster is installed in base on the F441R Baler. The hydraulic device maintains high hydraulic pressure in the density bracket during the complete baling process, even when using a tractor with decreased hydraulic performance.

Thanks to the density booster, the tailgate stays firmly closed from the start of bale formation to the end of the tying process. This increases the bale density and weight. The effect of the density booster is especially visible on small bales of 1.25 m (4.10 ft).

By limiting the trapped air, forage quality is also highly enhanced.

Damped gate cylinders
Damped gate cylindersDamped gate cylinders

Opening and closing gate motion is driven by damped cylinders, which simultaneously provide very fast cycles at around 6 seconds to open and close the gate (can depend on tractor hydraulic capacity) and minimize chocks at the end of motion due to gate inertia. High machine productivity is achieved while machine frame stress is decreased.
